Living in Spokane, Washington Don was encouraged by his wife and a friend, who was a member of exchange, to become involved in community service. Don joined the Downtown Exchange club in 1992.
Don has served as the President of Downtown Exchange club of Spokane twice and currently serves as the President of the clubs foundation. Don has served as the President of the Northwest District Exchange club and currently as the Division 4 Director.
Don’s dedication and skill in designing the District’s Patches and Pins for the past several years is extraordinary and he is committed to again do the District Awards Manual for 2018-2019.
Don’s modesty belies his pride in his military service, having flown combat Missions / Sorties in both Korea and Vietnam. His stellar military career is what brought him to the Spokane valley where he retired as a Colonel in the US Air Force.
Having been married twice Don is a widower, as both spouses have passed. Don is not alone as he has one step daughter, two step sons, three daughters, thirteen grand kids and three great grand kids!
“I am fully committed to the mission of Exchange and to all of the community services provided”.
